Got the email today. There will be no Ranger Steve this summer. At least not this Ranger Steve. The letter was very polite, told about how great all the applicants were, and that unfortunately there was only one position to fill. It went to some 5th grade teacher in the Salt Lake area, that’s all the info that was given out (guess that’s so nobody can go out and “encourage” them to remove their name from the petition, uh, I mean position). So, not this summer for me, but the good thing about that rejection email is that I have a link to a whole bunch of other Parks that have Teacher-Ranger-Teacher positions that I can apply for next year. I’m gonna start earlier, and apply for a bunch of them next year. Down, but not out.
